Above you may view the scans for a WWI 84th Battalion CEF sweetheart badge. This beautiful example with straight pin attachment. The enameling is still excellent. A beautiful sweetheart commemorative. The badge is very clean and still somewhat shiny, base metal is copper, and there is a minute hallmark on the back that reads "Trophiecraft"...

Sweetheart badges and pins were often given to a female loved one, by their soldier lover, son (usually), or father. They could have been supplied, for a cost, by the quartermaster or by a private organization, such as Birks. Most were simply converted uniform devises from the regiment, and were available in the tuck shops. Many, if not all of the battalions and regiments had this type of inspirational badge. As the war wore on, many of the givers were lost, and did not return. Consequently, these items became very cherished by their recipients. Therefore they are generally called sweethearts?
